|Bank Island Barnie|
|a successful hunt|
I was out again this morning and went to Old Moor to try for the returning Little Bittern, yet another Barn Owl was seen, it flew across the approach road as I turned in, I joined the assembled birders and learned the very early risers had had some good views of it in some willows before it had flown into the small reedbed next to the Bittern hide which was now being staked out, after a while it flew out but I was unfortunately in the wrong place and my view was blocked by some bushes although I did hear it “barking” a bit later and managed to get decent views of its larger cousin and then the morning was soon over, maybe I'll get another chance.
